Buying a nice little 2008 Mazda 6.
Wish I could just use Google Wallet as a credit and loan source.
I had migrated what little of this site I had written to techintoenglish.net. Then, the inevitable WordPress security bug caused my site to be hacked. Lesson learned. Pure HTML 5 from here on out.
Techintoenglish.net will return, under the new moniker techguycanhelp.com. Look for it in the next few months. I hope to make it a platform for rational, fun, informative discussion about tech, life, and tech in life, and how to make the most of one's technology.
I am excited and hopeful for this new venture. Check back in few weeks, will ya?
Does the idea of opening a big can of Ken-L-Ration and plunging in with a large spoon for your next lunch scare you? Gross you out? Make you nervous about diseases, mad cow, etc?
The subject today, folks, is a #techterm (to make the term search-able is why the pound sign is there) known in the technology business as Dogfooding. What in the name of time is Dogfooding? As you may be able to guess, it means eating dogfood that you yourself have made, or simply, using your own product and solutions.
If you are a private or independent technology consultant, as I am, this idea is critical. But, in all walks of life, dogfooding is important, as it prevents a dreaded symptom of not taking our own medicine; Hypocrisy. No one wants to be or even feel like a hypocrite.
Yes, using your own solution to fix your own issues is very important and a fine way to learn more about yourself, your needs, your industry, et cetera, and on and on...however, even I get tired of Dogfooding, sometimes...like in the previous sentence. Have a great day, dear readers.
Well, in the tiny little island called Jaytv land, the functionality of a product must follow closely just behind It's form...unless it is an #Apple product, and then all bets are off...
The Nook at first seemed to be such a strange device...then I spoke with my lone adopter...as I will call my #decider/influencer mentioned below.
She mentioned the Nook's true strength, right out of the box...the completeness of Its back catalog of both authors' earlier works, and complete sets of all technical manuals in any given series.
BIG Deal, I was thinking...more tomorrow on how wrong I was...
Is it? This is a test, this is only a test...we will be back to your regularly scheduled programs forthwith...
